Murakami's Translations

His novels and short stories apart, Haruki Murakami has also made a name for himself as an accomplished translator, having taken on John Irving, Truman Capote, Tim O'Brien and J.D. Salinger as well as the complete works of Raymond Carver. His latest translation is that of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby which, in this interview, he calls "the most important novel in my life".
